    LUBITSCH IN BERLIN, a six-film box set of invaluable films by Germany’s first great director, as part of The Masters of Cinema Series in a definitive Blu-ray edition on 18 September 2017.

    Before he arrived in Hollywood to leave his indelible (and inimitable) mark on timeless comedies like Trouble in Paradise and The Shop Around The Corner, Ernst Lubitsch created an expansive body of work in Germany that proved to be as varied in tone as it was sophisticated in its measure of man and woman.

    This set collects six restored works from the silent phase of Lubitsch’s career, and casts new light on the director both as a fully-formed comic master, and as a virtuoso of cinematographic technique. The Masters of Cinema Series is proud to present these six works by Ernst Lubitsch for the first time ever on Blu-ray.

    Special Features:
    • High-definition restored transfers of all six films
    • Original German intertitles with optional English subtitles
    • Robert Fischer’s 2006 feature-length documentary Ernst Lubitsch in Berlin: From Schönhauser Allee to Hollywood
    • Exclusive concertina score for Die Puppe, by Bernard Wrigley
    • PLUS: A booklet containing liner notes for all six features by film-writers David Cairns, Anna Thorngate, and Ignatiy Vishnevetsky
